Thanks for consulting me at HCM. I have carefully worked through your case, and can well realize your health worries. Being your physician, I want to assure, I will take care all of your medical concerns according to latest medical practice guidelines.


Your query remained unanswered for many days so I am taking the chance to help you for the same.

You need to avoid salt and sugar not only to avoid weight gain but also to save yourself from hypertension and diabetes mellitus.

For weight loss, you need to avoid fatty and high protein diet and increase the uptake of vegetables, fruits and salads. More water intake and Citrucel dietary fiber supplement is necessary for you.

Proper physical activity on regular basis is needed to maintain a healthy weight. Your BMI should not exceed 24.99 and not to drop below 18.


If you feel difficulty in choosing food and diet charts, you may need to consult a Dietitian who will manage a diet plan for you according to your taste and food choices.

I m a obese fat woman 300lb s plus, I ve been trying really hard to lose weight, but to be real truthful, PEOPLE make it hard. I m tired of being laughed at and critizied, everytime I leave my house. I don t hardly get out of my house now, because I m sick of being laughed at, and believe me I ve heard all of the rude remark s I ve seen all the digusted looks , I stay in my house where I know it s safe. I m 56 and know I HAVE to get this weight off, but I am a stress eater, and believe me when I say people cause me stress, I think why bother , whats the point ? So I stay in my house and eat. PEOPLE PLEASE UNDERSTAND , OBESITY IS A DISEASE! JUST AS SERIOUS AND LIFE THREATENING AS ANY OTHER DISEASE OUT THERE, AND PEOPLE WHO SUFFER FROM IT SHOULD HAVE THE SAME COMPASSION AS THOSE WITH OTHER ILLNESSES. IT SHOULD BE THOUGHT AS SUCH, NOT LAUGHED AT AND MADE FUN OF. WE FAT PEOPLE ALSO HAVE FEELING S ! BIG SURPRISE HUH , YES WE ARE HUMAN , SAME FEELINGS AS YOU !!!!!
